We know we’re jumping ahead here, but can you blame us? Springtime is upon us, and we’re positively itching to shed those winter layers. Anyway, with ‘social distancing’ at the front of our minds, the idea of roaming around in wide open spaces with little ones in tow sounds, frankly, refreshing.

With an entirely new world climbing out from under the snow, ‘tis the season to inspire a love of and fascination for the earth. So never mind the puddles and the mud, just grab a pair of rain boots, use these ‘3 Outdoor Activities for Spring’ as a guide, and enjoy the change in seasons!

Last night I used the iPad to turn on a tutorial video about a new board game!  It was just the ticket to get his mind detoxed from the mind numbing digital world and into a fun family activity!  

 

Look… We get it.

With all of this COVID chaos, it can be hard not to go a little stir crazy. As much as we love our families, sitting around the table and making empty eye contact over grilled cheese and condensed soup for the fourth day in a row can get a little… dull.

Lucky for you, we’ve got loads of ideas to keep your loved ones entertained. As frustrating as it may be to stay cooped up with seemingly nothing to do, we firmly believe that all of this ‘together-time’ may actually be a blessing in disguise! After all, nothing screams “Family Bonding” like cancelled classes and shuttered office doors.

With this in mind, please enjoy these 3 ways to avoid family “cabin fever.”

Your little guy is now seven, and they’re in the first grade and starting the long journey to adulthood. With their necessary motor and learning skills now in place, it’s essential for your child to explore and find out what they like to do and what they're good at. Through playing with toys, parents can learn what skills their children may have that should be cultivated, or they may just want to have some fun. Either way, here are 10 of the best toys & gifts for 7 year old boys in 2020.
Coloring is just hassle free, relaxing fun to be enjoyed alone or with friends.
Unicorns, a mythological animal resembling a horse or a kid with a single horn on its forehead. Either way we love them and it's time to party!

Your kids are home from school and Pandemonium and Chaos has ensued!!  What should I do with these kids before they drive me crazy! As a home school mom of 3, let me tell you a few hints. 

First, you need a plan.  And some goals. Think about what you wish your child(ren) knew.  Should they be better at multiplication or do you want them to learn about a different country?  Now is the time to ensure they know about your ancestral country, chemistry or famous artists. Jot a couple of ideas down and choose the top 1 or 2.

Virtual field trips are a great way to expose kids to new places all from the comfort of home. Now more than ever, is it easier to visit destinations around the world from the comfort of your couch.

With increased family time in light of recent events being able to provide fun and educational experiences from home are crucial.   Virtual field trips are a fun and educational way to visit places virtually and keep “travel” going.

Many of us are adjusting to a “new normal” of more time at home with our kids. At Melissa & Doug, we’re putting our creative brains to work to give you activity ideas to keep your children busy and help you reduce your stress. Below are ideas designed to encourage kids’ independent play so you can get some work done. Try those that might be a good fit for your family, and let us know what is working by posting your experiences with this hashtag: #PowerOfPlay.
